People in rural Ramsey County without transportation will soon have a new, reliable way to get to Devils Lake. Devils Lake Transit is expanding beyond the city limits.

Devils Lake transit is the only handicap-accessible public transportation in town, and until now, only people in town could use it. Starting in December, a bus will make monthly trips to towns that dot the map in rural Ramsey County, from Starkweather and Hampden to Edmore, Brocket and Lawton.

Transit Services Director Pat Hejlik says people in rural areas are already excited about the new bus service. Some rural residents live 40 miles or more from Devils Lake. Hejlik says getting to town can be a chore, especially for senior citizens who don't drive, but the service is available for anyone.

Devils Lake Transit also takes passengers to Grand Forks once a week if they have medical appointments.
